As we sit today I’m a father of 3 and a husband to Kendra, my amazing wife. There will be plenty of post about her wonderfulness later on. I will also write about family adventures and my walk with Christ. I have operated Big Box Pro Video Productions for a while now.

In September of 2014 I was diagnosed with cancer. I visited MD Anderson and found out I had Diffused Large B Cell Lymphoma.

I’m passionate about bike packing on mountain bikes, photography, woodworking & hiking in nature. When I get a chance to travel my first choice is always West Texas. It’s too bad I don’t always get to choose where we travel to. I put a previous blog on life support to start-up this one. The blog is about our land in west Texas. If you care to look at it click to here! This blog was set up to tell tall tails and great stories from my childhood, but now it is for family and friends to keep up with my fight against cancer.

In January of 2018, I passed my amateur radio test and became a technician with the call sign KG5YBU. I have been wanting to cross that off the to do list since middle school.
